Big Bend National Park, Texas






Narrowing down pics from "Big Bend National Park", Texas was not easy. Let me tell ya. We have tons. We did lots of hiking, taking in the sights & we just marveled at the view. It's spectacular there. It does take a while to drive there, such a low part of Texas. & we all know TEXAS is huge!!! so you might as well enjoy it while you are there. We were there for 3 days. They do have gasoline, but we brought in all our foods & lots of water. I'll never forget our trip. SO so so AMAZING AWESOME!!! 

The Rio Grande is not GRANDE, or grand ...it is tiny in my opinion. talking side 2 side, maybe when it is floods it does get to the GRAND sizing? maybe that is when the name came about? So much more smaller than I would have ever realized. I do wonder how it got it's name? So so strange. (1st shot.)

So happy to get a good shot of the road runner. One of my most favorite birds ever & wish list to capture one day. CHECK! (last shot.)

Not getting political or whatnot, but I have no clue how they would think to even start/begin to put up a wall here? The area is so massive. I must admit I didn't know how close Mexico and the United States are to one another. It is within spiting distance. You could just walk out into the water and you were there.


Please enjoy this vlog for that day. Thank you kindly for stopping by. Enjoy your day!!! Beth ( :

Interesting looking place. I love that bird photo.
Looks amazing, Beth. And sounds like the trip of a lifetime! I think everyone is intrigued by Trump's vision of a wall! Er - when you say you didn't realise Mexico was that close, it does share a border with the USA..? :-)

It is beautiful countryside. It's good that it was set aside as a national park.

Beautiful scenes. The Roadrunner is trying hard to not be seen,but alas,he failed.:)I remember driving over the Roi Grand and thinking too that it was not that big a deal.

I do know that Texas is HUGE....we drove across Jan. 2015..... We were close to the Mexican border by El Pasco.
Gorgeous! I love the road runner. Always make me think of the cartoon.

Big Bend is on my bucket list.

I love your roadrunner pic. When I worked in west Texas I saw roadrunners kill rattlesnakes a few times so they are my heroes.

Hello, sounds like another great trip and visit Beth! I love the roadrunner. Texas is a huge state. Enjoy your day and the week ahead!
Linda said…
Nice shots! I think the river used to have more water. I have read somewhere that water is diverted upstream for irrigation.
Tanya Breese said…
look at that sneaky roadrunner! love the 2nd photo!
We had so much fun when we went almost twenty years ago!

Great photos. It looks like a nice place (but probably hot) to visit.

Roadrunners ROCK!!! They are so smart . . and fun. . . and, they can keep you good company . . I saw plenty of them when I lived in Arizona (going to school.) I
Until now, i have never hear anyone suggest the Rio Grande wasn't Grande . .

What? You are everywhere! Everywhere at Once! You are some kind of magic, i think . .

I like your kind of magic.

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
